Steps to Perform Cost Benefit Analysis
Step 1: Establish a framework for analysis
Identifying the state of affairs is one of the most basic steps to perform cost benefit analysis. Analyze the changes before and after the investment or policy change and outline the proposed program in detail. This will help you measure the profit of taking up any investment as opposed to maintaining the status quo.

Step 2: Analyze costs and benefits
After establishing the framework, identify costs and benefits into different categories. The primary categories involve direct, indirect, tangible, intangible, and real costs. Direct costs are often associated with the production of products or services whereas indirect costs may either come from a cost center or department. Tangible costs are related to an identifiable asset such as payroll whereas intangible costs are usually associated with shifts in customer satisfaction.
